You don’t have to give up the pleasure of using nonstick cookware, to avoid the chemicals most nonstick cookware emits. What are the options of using cookware that is safe for your family? Much has been exposed over the past 10 years about the dangers of Teflon nonstick coatings to our health. In a recent article from Dr. Mercola (the most popular alternative-health website on the Internet with 2 million viewers) the topic is again brought to the forefront. He states:
“Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA, also known as C8), was an essential ingredient in DuPont's (Teflon) non-stick cookware for decades… PFOA is a fluorinated chemical — it's the fluorine atoms that provide that hallmark slipperiness. I first became aware of the dangers of fluoride-impregnated non-stick coatings back in 2001, and have warned about using such products ever since… In fact, 10 years ago, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) fined DuPont $16.5 million for withholding decades' worth of information about health hazards associated with PFOA. At the time, that fine was the largest the EPA had ever assessed…” 
This website, however, goes on to promote ceramic as the alternative. Fortunately for consumers, you don’t have to rely on ceramic as the alternative, because it is not nonstick and does not offer the convenience we love in preparing food for our families with the end result…. easy and quick clean-up. People have very busy lives and cooking at home is so important to ensure we are steering clear of processed food and ingredients we don’t desire. Cooking at home can be both safe and easy.
The preferred alternative to Teflon’s nonstick coating is Titanium! Titanium is inert in the human body. This means it is chemically inactive and is therefore used in many surgical applications such as hip replacements and tooth implants. It is simply not going to affect the food you are cooking, nor the air you are breathing.
In addition to being incredibly pleasant to use due to the easy clean up, it offers many additional benefits including but not limited to:
As you can see, you really have the option to continue to enjoy the pleasure of using nonstick cookware, and still be using cookware that is safe for your family.
